Introduction: Mechanical Pencil Staple Shooter

Take the cap off of a mechanical pencil, Load the used staple, Aim, And pull back to fire

Step 1: Supplies

bic mechanical pencil( with the button on top not the side)

Step 2: The Cap

Take the black cap off of the tip (This is difficult with bare hands) After that you can dispose of the tip.

Step 3: Load It

Push the button in and move the little gold ring down. Now either staple nothing so the folded staple will fall out or fold the staple with your hands. put one of the folded down ends in between the two plastic thingies sticking out of the pencil when you push the button(put the staple in a little less than half-way)

Step 4: FIRE!!

now aim and pull back the button to fire(be careful because it stings at close range and do not aim at face or eyes)

if you want it more destructive, just fold one part of the legs down from the staple and straight the other one

Unfold the stapler, hold the main body in your left hand. Then pound the stapler (where you would normally depress to staple) with the fist of your right hand (until the magazine is empty).

short range, noticable

in almost every year of middle school, all of the students would want to see who had the best firing gun that was also small, powerful, and hardest to be caught with. who would have thought of posting such a brilliant and simple idea? good job at describing it without using pictures.

yeah lame, finally figured out what the hell was goin on. basically, just pop the cap then put a staple horizontally through the two lead-grips. when you pull, more like depress, the clicker back, then staple "pops" out.
